WITH THE START of the men's college lacrosse season just over a week away, the quality of the local programs is as good as it's ever been. Adding to the excitement, Villanova will host the inaugural Big East Tournament, and Drexel will be the host school for two NCAA Tournament quarterfinal games May 20 at PPL Park. "It will be great exposure for Philadelphia-area lacrosse, with top teams coming in here," Villanova coach Mike Corrado said. "I hate to say it as a Long Island guy, but along with New York and Maryland, this area is becoming one of the country's premiere hotbeds of lacrosse.

The Moorestown boys' lacrosse team had just played its best game of the year, by far, in an 8-2 win at Ridgewood in the state Group 3 semifinals. But Quakers coach Baron Wallenhurst didn't take time to celebrate after the 90-minute ride back to Moorestown on Saturday. Instead, the coach stepped off the team bus and into his own car, and he made another drive back north - this one to Ridge, where he scouted the other Group 3 semifinal between Morristown and Ridge. "I think we logged about 400 miles that day," said Wallenhurst, whose fifth-seeded Quakers will play No. 2 Ridge at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Watchung Hills.

Haddonfield High is adding boys' and girls' lacrosse to its athletic program, athletic director Lefteris "Lefty" Banos announced yesterday. The programs will start next spring, and they were approved as pay-to-play sports, Banos said, explaining that most of the costs will be paid by the students. "We hope to start a booster club that will have fund-raisers to help offset the students' costs," Banos said. The costs will include the coaches' salaries, transportation, officials, uniforms and equipment.

UNION, N.J. - The final minutes of the game, the curtain call for one of the best Lenape girls' lacrosse teams ever, were fitting. The Indians didn't pay attention to the score - or the odds stacked against them. They just never stopped fighting. "These players showed so much heart today," coach Jill McCarthy said Saturday after an 11-9 loss to Ridgewood in the Group 4 championship at Kean University. "We never gave up, we believed in each other. And that's what carried us to where we are - everything we do is about competition and heart and doing it until the very end - and that was evident today.

Jeremy Huber died a few days before he was to suit up for his first season of college lacrosse. He has been gone for a little more than three months, but the freshman has never left his teammates. He was with them in the postgame prayer after every game this season. Johns Hopkins players always took the field with the number 19 - his intended jersey number - stitched onto their jerseys and painted on their helmets. That same 19 was painted on their home field in front of their bench.

When the 2015 men's lacrosse season opened, optimism abounded at Penn State. Not only were the Nittany Lions making their debut in the Big Ten, but they began the season ranked 14th in the 2015 United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Division 1 preseason coaches' poll. But the Lions' season has not gone as planned. Headed into Sunday's game vs. Rutgers, the Nittany Lions are 3-8 overall and winless (0-3) in the Big Ten. The 2015 campaign started smoothly enough, with a season-opening 15-8 victory over Vermont.

Matt Donnelly can only hope the rest of his final scholastic season is an echo of the start. Donnelly, a speedy senior, scored a career-high seven goals to lead visiting Clearview to a 14-6 victory over Haddonfield in the Olympic Conference Patriot Division opener for both boys' lacrosse teams Wednesday night. "I never scored seven before - not even in youth [lacrosse]," said Donnelly, a Penn State recruit. "It's a great feeling. " Junior Jackson Specht added four goals for Clearview, which burst to a 6-0 lead against a Haddonfield team with just two seniors on the roster.

In soccer and lacrosse, finishing is considered an elusive skill. Conventional wisdom spans both games: Many players have the physical tools to score goals. Few have the prowess to do it regularly. Michael Handlan is a finisher. Seasons change, sports change, and the results stay the same for Handlan. The senior forward for the Moorestown boys' soccer team is a pure scorer, evidence that the ability to net a goal is more than a physical skill. "It's a natural tendency.
